Metal was always the preferred material by Artists throughout human history.
Current 3D Metal printing technology offers designers beautiful, strong & long lasting materials.
This category consist of: Stainless Steel, Bronze, Brass, Gold, Silver, Titanium – to name a few.
How It’s Made: 3D Metal Printing
In the past few years i’ve 3D printed several Math Art pieces in Stainless Steel, Gold Plated Brass, Sterling Silver – all derived from Mathematical equations.
The most popular one by far is the Klein Bottle.
The Klein bottle is an example of a non-orientable surface – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klein_bottle
I’ve scaled it down to a pendant size and sent it to be made in high resolution Gold Plated Brass at a 3D printing service.
The technology behind this 3D printing process uses a high resolution WAX 3D printer.
The 3D printed WAX model is molded then cast in Brass.
(The same method is used for precious metals such as Gold & Silver).
Another Math Art piece i’ve 3D printed in Gold Plated Brass is the Infinity.
It’s based on a Mathematical surface called Jeener’s Klein – An infinite loop from one aperture to the next.
Two Math Art designs were 3d printed in Stainless Steel – One was given a color tone of “Old Silver” while the other was post processed as “Medieval pewter”.
Both are based on formulated Math Knots.
